Madison unveils Iowa wind plan
Wisconsin utility to build and operate 66MW project near Saratoga
Madison Gas and Electric (MGE) has announced plans to build and operate a 66MW wind farm near Saratoga in Iowa.
The Saratoga project, if approved, will consist of 33 turbines at a site in Howard County and serve MGE customers in Wisconsin.
Construction would start in early 2018 for completion by the end of that year, the company said.
The total capital cost of the project would be about $107m, MGE said.
MGE filed a letter on 21 February with the Public Service Commission of Wisconsin notifying the commission of its intent to seek approval to build the wind farm.
The company expects to file its formal application with the commission in March.
